Scientists mystified as 20 earthquakes
hit Oklahoma in one day

Daily Mail [UK], by Daily Mail Reporter & Associated Press

Original Article

Posted By:Attercliffe, 2/18/2014 5:39:42 AM

Residents of Oklahoma were left feeling rattled over the weekend after a strong of some 20 earthquakes as powerful as 3.5 magnitude rocked the central part of the state on Saturday alone. Areas north of Oklahoma City felt the brunt of the temblors, which some say were accompanied by startling booms like the sound of an explosion. The mystery earthquake wave now has residents fearing for their personal safety and the security of their property. Meanwhile, scientists have been left scratching their heads over the quakes, which are becoming more frequent each day. ´Felt like bombs going off. It´s just a huge

Unnerving, to say the least. There are lots of Ldotters in Oklahoma and I hope they are all keeping calm and, well--you know.

Several commenters at the article are blaming fracking. However, if fracking is causing quakes in Oklahoma, it should also be causing quakes elsewhere like in North Dakota.

Were these ´scientists´ educated in public schools where the outcome is that 25% of the population doesn´t even know the earth revolves around the sun?

It´s the movement of tectonic plates stupid!

Oh I totally believe it´s fracking. I live about an hour away from Oklahoma City. A couple of years ago I noticed I could feel the floor vibrating. They had started fracking in a field about a block away. Then the small earthquakes started. Then they got stronger. Then we had one, a biggish one, that shook the house and roared for several loooonnnng seconds.(It was a 5.?) The vibrating floor has pretty much stopped - as have the earthquakes.

I live in Moore, OK (suburb of OKC) and my biggest concern is the New Madrid Fault which supposedly hits every 200 years or so, ergo, we´re due for one.

Hat tip #11; so many folks are unaware of this fault it staggers the imagination.

Must be part of the verse: wars, rumors of wars, kingdoms rising against kingdoms, earthquakes in diverse places.....

#11, that earthquake was felt as far south as Charleston, Hilton Head and Savannah. It´s to do with the makeup of the ground under your feet. Relevant article in the local paper:

"Edgefield quake swayed ground more in Charleston area than in Upstate"

The reason is deep, sandy Lowcountry soils amplify earthquake seismic waves, said Steve Jaume, an associate professor and quake expert at the College of Charleston.

"We have thousands of feet of this weak, wiggly stuff. Think bowl of Jell-O," he said.

I wouldn´t think that ´´earthquakes as powerful as 3.5 magnitude´´ would rock anything.

Long a theory in earthquake prevention - trigger a whole bunch of small 3.5 quakes to gradually relieve pressure on the faults. Fracking could do that - or more directly pump water into the actual fault lines. The idea is that say 1000 3.5 quakes could offset and thus prevent a giant 6.5 quake. No one has so far had the requisite recklessness to try the theory out in practice (See the Bond movie ´´View to a Kill´´ for a version where such triggering is meant to actually cause a 9.5+ quake in sunny CA).

I recall from my geology course a few decades ago that lubricating a fault may allow it to slip sooner than it would otherwise. The studies were done on reservoirs on fault lines.

Also, it is well known that injecting water into the ground can lubricate a fault and produce quakes. At The Geysers geothermal field where water is injected into the earth to produce steam, there are often tremors. When they become too often and/or large, the procedure is for the operators to stop the injection for a while.

I can see why people think fracking is doing it in Oklahoma. The article states that there are many faults there. Perhaps the fault structure in Montana and Texas is different, or the faults are not near the injection sites.

Thousands die of thirst
and poor care in NHS
Telegraph [UK], by Padraic Flanagan, Laura Donnelly    Original Article
Posted By: Attercliffe- 4/22/2014 7:53:38 AM     Post Reply
At least 1,000 hospital patients are dying needlessly each month from dehydration and poor care by doctors and nurses, according to an NHS study. The deaths from acute kidney injury could be prevented by simple steps such as nurses ensuring patients have enough to drink and doctors reviewing their medication, the researchers say. Between 15,000 and 40,000 patients die annually because hospital staff fail to diagnose the treatable kidney problem, a figure that dwarfs the death toll from superbugs like MRSA. The report comes less than a year after the NHS watchdog NICE was forced to issue guidelines on giving patients water

The term "Dark Net" is shorthand to describe the hidden and encrypted part of the internet beyond the reach of normal browsers, accessible only using the anonymous browser Tor. It´s protected by a clever traffic encryption system which makes it very difficult to locate the servers which host sites--called Tor Hidden Services--and the IP addresses of the people the visit them. Tor used to stand for The Onion Router, and so some call this world "Onionland". Anonymity and freedom rule Onionland, not censorship.

The Obama administration is poised to entertain a flood of new clemency applications from thousands of federal prisoners who were given harsh sentences under mandatory-minimum laws following drug convictions, Attorney General Eric Holder said Monday. Holder said in a short videotaped statement that he wants to shrink the federal prison population by a modest amount while ensuring ´that those who have paid their debts have a chance to become productive citizens.´ At the center of the move is a set of old sentencing rules that punished crack-cocaine offenders with more time behind bars than users or traffickers of powder cocaine.

A pregnant journalist is recovering in hospital today after a pro-Kremlin political leader in Russia told two male aides to ´violently rape´ her at a press conference. Nationalist Vladimir Zhironovsky launched his extraordinary tirade after reporter Stella Dubovitskaya asked him an innocuous question about sanctions against Ukraine. The founder of the far right Liberal Democratic Party began shouting wildly, before suddenly manhandling two young male aides towards the pregnant mother-of-one.

A huge fire in Gibraltar, caused by a fuel tank explosion, shut down many online betting services and disrupted gamblers during a busy day of sport. Residences near the blaze were evactuated following the fire, which broke out at around 1pm local time. The explosion occurred at Gibraltar´s main power station and the fire shut down much of the area´s electricity. Thousands of residents and tourists were left without power while firefighters battled the blaze. The fire was eventually brought under control at around 4.30pm local time.

No really, it is.

At least six Birmingham schools accused of harbouring a Trojan horse plot run by Muslim fundamentalists will be placed under special measures by Ofsted. The action is understandable. The unsubtle attempts to insert Islamist ideas--representing an extremist, politicised form of Islam--into the curriculum of those schools makes for frightening reading. Equally unsettling was the liberal establishment’s failure to correct it. According to a special report by the Education Funding Agency, radical Muslims have tried to take control of teaching by first taking control of school governorships.

Washington - Michelle Obama said "splurging is the key to life" if you regularly eat right and stay active. Her biggest guilty pleasure: French fries. "How would you appreciate vegetables if you never had chocolate?" she asked. "You couldn´t live without a little chocolate, a little French fries." The first lady took questions from children reporters Monday after appearing at the White House Easter Egg Roll. She told the children that if they eat right the majority of the time, then a splurge or snack is not going to hurt them. "I still splurge when I can, but that's why I try to exercise almost every day," she said.

Global sea levels have risen by 8 inches (20cm) since 1880 and scientists predict they could rise up to 3ft (98cm) by 2100. But despite the UN’s recent threats of war, famine and extreme weather, such a dramatically different world caused by sea level rise can be hard to imagine. To help picture the future, Martin Vargic, an amateur graphic designer from Slovakia, has created a map depicting the planet with sea levels around 260ft (79m) higher than they are today.

There is nothing like it in the democracies of Europe, which came into being with nations already carved up into private fiefdoms.

There’s a pattern of falsifying statistics throughout the entire Census Bureau.

As I’ve been writing for more than six months, the Census Bureau office in Philadelphia uncovered a case of fraud in 2010, did nothing about it and allowed the practice to continue. In that instance, a data collector named Julius Buckmon was faking reports that went into the nation’s all-important jobless tally and consumer-inflation survey.
